Some Bunny's Dreaming

Mosaic bunny and flowers by Jeanne Selep
Mosaic "Some Bunny's Dreaming" Detail

My "Some Bunny's Dreaming" mosaic stepping stone was created in 2020 because a favorite 3D ceramic bunny broke and I wanted to try to reuse the pieces.  I ended up using sections of the ceramic bunny to make the rabbit in a circular stepping stone.

I wanted the rabbit/bunny to appear to be whimsically dreaming of a Klimt-like field of flowers, and I had several plates in particular that I wanted to use.

One of the plates I really wanted to use had the Lilies of the Valley on it, which became the grass the rabbit sits on.  The other plate had the blue-purple flowers immediately above the rabbit's head, with a very spring-like green foliage and hand-painted with gold.  This plate had an Art Deco feel to it.

I also wanted to use hand-painted pink and yellow flowers from some orphaned teacup saucers, and I used various violet patterned china to fill in the rest of the flowers.

Arranging the landscape line in a circle was harder than I thought.  As I put the "grass" in the foreground, it was too low at first, and putting the grass behind the bunny caused the arrangement to became less whimsical and more like a landscape.

Different lighting, (for example bright sun) makes the mosaic texture stand out more.  Because the stepping stone has three dimensional parts, I placed it in a spot where (hopefully) it won't get stepped on.

The colors say spring, and you did a great job in the direction the pieces go, and making if different for the bunny! Do you think of it as your covid piece, or did you make more mosaics in 2020?

French Ethereal said...

Jeanne, I love this sweet bunny mosaic!!! I have an entire bin of broken teacups, plates and such that I have been saving for years. My kids came to know that if something broke, we could reuse it in the future in a fun project. A perfect way to reuse something which was once loved to be loved again!

I tried to pull in one of your photographs again, but alas it just wouldn't. :( Not sure why when it will pin. Maybe because I am no longer on Blogger but over on WordPress...? Anyway, happy to pin your bunny mosaic!!!

Thank you for linking up at Share Your Style two weeks ago. I ended up taking off last week with my second Covid shot and getting back late from Oklahoma (where it was, then I went on a drive.)

Spring hugs,
Barb :)
